COSTA TO MILAN ON LOAN

CHELSEA & MAN UTD TRACK BARKLEY
Chelsea and Manchester United could spark a bidding war with Tottenham for Everton midfielder Ross Barkley, according to The Times .

CHELSEA WON’T MEET £30.8M DANILO FEE

CHELSEA SHY AWAY FROM MORATA BIDDING WAR
Chelsea have no intention of being dragged into a bidding war for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, according to the Daily Star .
